Outside the Box: Fatherly advice proves Fergie is down with the kids

It is clearly the time of year for our leading managers to be digging into their innermost soul. While Arsène Wenger reflected on questions of anger management after his untypical but highly successful half-time outburst at Anfield last Sunday, Sir Alex Ferguson has contributed to a book of life-lessons entitled "The Handbook of Life" produced for North West-based children's charities. He tells readers: "I have had a few good pieces of advice about life. Appreciate your youth, upbringing and the ideals that your parents have given you and through that you can enjoy life and pass these values to your own children. You should enjoy it and try and have a happy approach to it. My Dad told me when I was about to start work: 'If you are going to do something, do it well.' After 43 trophies as a manager, you could say he has lived up to that.

Joan Smith: 'Honour' killings are an outrage we must confront

It's a startling statistic: in one British city alone, 33 children under the age of 16 are missing from school rolls. Officials in Bradford have not been able to establish what has happened to them, and there are fears that some may have become victims of forced marriage.

Mystery of Bradford's missing children: were they forced into marriages abroad?

They are the missing women of Bradford – the more than 200 teenage girls per year who disappear from their schools and fail to return from trips overseas. Where they go and whether they come back is not known, but is is feared that many are forced to marry abroad – and hundreds more like them across the country are vanishing every year.

Editor-At-Large: Lancashire hotpot? For the love of Pauline, give it up man

As romantic celebrations go, it was a menu that revealed an awful lot. For John Prescott's 68th birthday dinner, his long-suffering wife Pauline cooked him a hotpot. Yes, a hotpot. Instead of braving the media, the cameras, the gawpers and the regular diners at his favourite Chinese restaurant in Hull, the Prescotts decided to batten down the hatches and celebrate behind closed doors at the family home. We owe the revelations about the homely fare on offer to John, of course. For Pauline, true to form, has said nothing. From the moment John put his foot in it by revealing that Pauline didn't want to mess up her hair at the party conference in Bournemouth several years ago, and so committed the environmental crime of taking the Jaguar 200 yards from her hotel to the delegates' hall, Pauline has wisely decided that the less she says about anything the better.

The Third Leader: Happiness is...

Only a curmudgeon could fail to respond positively to someone who wants to make us happy, so blame it on the weather, the time of the week or because I've already impotently advised against the wisdom of such an ambition. Besides, how could one not warm to Mr David Cameron, a man who is almost hoarse with sincerity?
